    Abstract

    Introduction: With diffusion of PET/CT within industry reaching a peak
    on the international stage, hybrid PET/MRI devices have emerged as the
    next cutting edge technology for imaging. The purpose of this poster presentation is to provide a pictorial review of the role of image fusion between
    non-hybrid PET and MRI to provide an insight into the potential of new
    developments.

    Method: The data sets were performed on a hybrid GE discovery time of
    flight PET/64 slice CT system and a Siemens 3T MRI. The data represents
    4 clinical cases using FDG based PET; 3 of the brain and 1 of the spine.

    Results: The case study results provide an insight into the importance of
    PET-MRI fusion to diagnostic integrity and the potential of hybrid PET/MRI
    technology. They also provide an insight into the capabilities of non hybrid
    PET – MRI fusion and potential prohibition of rapid diffusion of hybrid
    technology.

    Conclusion: PET-MRI fusion plays an crucial role in improving the diag-
    nostic integrity in a reciprocal fashion across a diverse range of applications,
    but particularly in the head and neck.
